A few weeks ago, there was a lot of hype surrounding the first Tesla being bought with Bitcoin. Earlier this year, Auto-outlet started to accept Bitcoin payments. Moreover, they sold their second Tesla in history for Bitcoin, which was delivered to the customer in Prague.
Tesla and Bitcoin Seem To Mix Well
Many people often wonder what the benefit of Bitcoin is, and how they can spend it on goods and services they need. While not everyone in the world is looking to buy a Tesla car, one couple in Prague decided to do so with Bitcoin. Auto-Outlet, as the company behind this service is called, started accepting Bitcoin payments for their Luxury Collection outlet a little while ago.
Among one of the first Bitcoin orders they processed was a Tesla Model S P90D. The vehicle has been purchased by a couple in Prague, for nearly 200,000 Euro. Interestingly enough, they decided to pay the entire amount in Bitcoin. This is one of the benefits cryptocurrency brings to the table: it is easy to move large sums of money within minutes.
It is rather interesting to see companies such as Auto-Outlet accept Bitcoin payments. While there are many benefits to doing so, luxury goods is not necessarily a market people would associate with Bitcoin. Then again, the sale of this Tesla Model S goes to show there is a market waiting to be tapped.
Auto-Outlet sells a wide variety of products, ranging from cars to motorcycles and even boats. All of their orders come with worldwide delivery, making them one player to keep an eye on in the future. In fact, the company staff will handle trade-in vehicles as well, if there would be a need to do so.
The previous Tesla purchased with Bitcoin was sold by the same company in May of 2016. Apparently, there is a growing demand to buy Tesla Model S cars with Bitcoin, despite their steep pricing. For people with money to burn, make sure to check out the Luxury Collection by Auto-Outlet.
